Bernedoodle Puppies



Welcome to Five Star Bernedoodles!

We are a small family run business located in central Pennsylvania. Our home sits on 10 Acres of beautiful farmland set in the rolling hills of the Appalachian Mountains. At Five Star we work together as a family to help care for our 2 horses, 3 sheep, 4 cats, a small flock of pastured chickens and on occasion a few pigs. All of our dogs and puppies grow up meeting many of the animals on the farmette. With plenty of room to run in their own space our puppies get plenty of exercise and are able to freely go in and out as they please. 

With 5 Children we have a large and loving family. The children, especially, love to play, run and cuddle with the puppies. This helps all of our puppies stay active, become more social, and get acquainted with being around small children and pets. Together we care for and raise happy, healthy puppies that have great temperaments. We raise all of our puppies from birth to their forever home. 

Over the years we have raised hundreds of beautiful, adorable puppies, some of our past breeds include Boston Terriers, American Bulldogs, and Goldendoodles but our latest has been our favorite; The Bernedoodle.

About the Stoltzfus Family.

Together as a family we enjoy caring for the puppies. When not with the puppies, we are often busy caring for the other animals on the farmette. During our free time we enjoy taking long walks, playing games with the children and enjoying the time together as a family. During the summer months we enjoy the warm weather with summertime picnics and backyard campfires. When the weather gets colder we turn to fun winter activities such as ice skating on the neighbors pond and sledding when it snows. Our children enjoy hobbies such as reading and making crafts with wood. We like to say they are “Free Range”, meaning giving them the opportunity to learn from the wonderful world we live in without being limited by an educational curriculum. 

Ester, my wife especially loves the warmer months where she gets the chance to play and work in our large garden. We raise and grow a lot of our food naturally, without the use of chemicals or pesticides. In fact we do not allow it on our property as we prefer to stay natural, organic and live a holistic lifestyle. We incorporate this into all aspects of our lives from the cosmetics we wear to the food we eat, living a healthy lifestyle. We treat our pets and animals  the very same, using as many natural and holistic ways as possible to provide them with optimal health.

Why Bernedoodles?

We say, why not Bernedoodles! We will arguably claim that the Bernedoodle is the best dog on earth! Seven years ago we bought our first Bernese Mountain dog, and the love has grown from there. With the intelligence of the Poodle and the affectionate love from the Bernese, It is simply the best combination. The calm demeanor of the Bernedoodle allows them to be the perfect family pet, service dog or therapy animal.

Standard Bernedoodles & Mini Bernedoodles

The Bernedoodle was first introduced in 2003 as a cross breed between a Bernese Mountain Dog and a Poodle. The Bernedoodle was bred solely for their companionship. Whether hiking a trail or lounging on the sofa the Bernedoodle makes for a great companion and is happy just being next to their human. These playful and active dogs while willful as puppies are highly trainable thanks to their large brains. 

Bernedoodles have a variety of fur colors that include anything from the standard Tri Color to pure Black, White, Mixed and Merle. Bernedoodles also offer a variety of fur types ranging from Curly to Straight and their thick coat makes them a suitable companion for colder temperatures. While no dog is 100% allergen free, these pups make a great choice for those that get itchy and sniffly around other dogs. 

Coming in Different sizes, the Bernedoodle can make a great pet for all types of living spaces. Thanks to the selective breeding process, the Bernedoodle can be found in Toy, Mini, and Standard sizes. 

Making for the perfect family pet, Bernedoodles are fond of children and make wonderful lifelong companions. Although intelligent, these pups tend to be goofy and love to be the center of attention.
